Waterford Treasures would like to congratulate Rupert, Ali, Maurice and all the team at the Waterford City & County Council architects office on receiving ‘The Great Place’ award from The Academy of Urbanism at their award ceremony in London last night.
The Great Place award was collected by the regenerated, historic Viking Triangle in Waterford, Ireland. However, the assessors noted that the Viking Triangle is more than a traditional physical regeneration initiative. “Supported by a strong historical narrative and harnessing the best of their assets, their strategy has been simple yet effective. Public funding has served as a catalyst and with local buy-in, this has led to an improved perception of the area. In turn this has enhanced the quality of life and competitiveness of local business which is leading to private sector investment” said Nick Childs, lead assessor.
